Focus On:  Recipe Substitutions

Picture this holiday scene: It's ten o'clock in the evening and you are just beginning to make all those holiday treats that everyone loves. As you start to pull out the ingredients, you quickly realize you are missing some key ones. The last thing you want to do is run to the store, and being this late, the store may not even be open. No need to panic. Check out these simple recipe substitutions that will save you a trip and a lot of stress.

If you don't have:               Use:


1 cup cake flour                   1 cup less 2 tablespoons

all-purpose flour


1 cup buttermilk                  1 cup milk plus 1

tablespoon lemon juice, or 1 cup plain yogurt


1 cup brown sugar                cup granulated sugar

plus cup molasses


1 teaspoon lemon juice         teaspoon white wine



1 cup heavy cream                2/3 cup milk plus 1/3

 cup melted butter


1 cup ricotta cheese             1 cup cottage cheese


1 cup light corn syrup           1 1/4 cup white sugar   

plus 1/3 cup water


1 cup soy sauce                    4 tablespoons

Worcestershire sauce mixed with 1 tablespoon water


Now, that holiday scene looks much more the way it should! However, what if it's not the ingredients you're missing, but now you can't find the actual recipes? Having to go through all those piles of recipes is not a pretty picture. Let GoodDeeds help. We'll organize your recipes so you can easily find even those that you only use once a year - making your cooking and baking for the holidays (or every day) picture perfect.
